Thanks Andra!

Two days old!

Our baby is exactly two days old!

He was born at home, Tuesday July 26th at 1 pm.
He was 8 pounds 1 ounce and 21 inches long...way bigger than a lot of folks predicted :)
We're all doing great, he is so cute and it looks like he'll have a pointy nose!
More photos from the birth and all the home birth details coming soon...

40 weeks!

I'm 40 weeks today!
My mom is in town and we are having a good time getting my house ready for the baby. We've cleaned and sewed and visited friends.
Here is my mom on the Deception Pass Bridge on the way to Whidbey Island.
We also had a picnic at the park and Adam convinced my mom to climb at the outdoor climbing wall.
She did really well!
Now we wait for the baby to come out...I have had some contractions and spotting since Sunday, so things are getting going, but it could take a while before it's full on labor.

Baby showers

I had a couple baby showers that I should have posted photos from...but looking back, I guess I didn't take very many photos.
First, above, is a photo of me and Micah at our combined shower hosted by Cydney. She made tasty sliders (mini burgers) and we had corn and watermelon - a true summer feast!
Cydney told each of the guests to bring some fabric scraps to piece together a baby quilt. It turned out so darling. I don't have any photos of us all working on the quilt squares, but we had a good time.

Here is a photo of me at the baby shower held by my ward family. It was a children's book party, where most of the gifts were books that each lady remembered her kids enjoying.
A lady in our ward made these lovely meringue mushrooms - she said she got the idea from my wedding cake! How sweet :)
Thanks for the I just have to have the baby :)

Fabric order!

I ordered myself some splashy new fabrics with my hoard of "personal money."
It came today!
I ordered from a Japanese fabric supplier. My order came perfectly folded and with two candies :)
I have some house and baby projects planned with each of these pieces.
